|Bio and Links|
|I live in Australia and have long been fascinated by the American Civil War.|
I have collected Civil War memorabilia for over 40 years.
In 1979, I purchased some memorabilia from the 117th. New York Infantry, which led to my interest in the regiment.
I have been obsessively collecting memorabilia, surfing the web and FAG for any mentions to add to my research files.
Thanks to many kind FAG volunteers, I have been able to request dozens of photographs to add to my Virtual Cemetery of members of the regiment.
I am currently adding names to the list. I have added over 1,200 so far.
I still have about 500 veterans to locate.
To be able to achieve all this half a world away from the action, is simply unbelievable.
If anyone has a relative who served in the 117th., or any information, I would be most happy to hear from you.

Oh Thank you
|Kathy Manning||Lowville Rural.|
I've been assisting someone with someone in the military during the civil war and came across this information and I wasn't sure if it's anything you're interested in, but thought I'd share just the same.
|Pattie Ford||RE: Casselman edits.|
No I had not done any research on any William or his brother Allen. But I just looked up on 3fold.com and found where Allen F Casselman stated:
"On May 16, 1864, I was a private soldier in Co. C. 117 New York Volunteer and was present on that day at the battle Drusey's Bluff or sometimes know as Ft Darling; that at that time, my brother William C Casselman was a lieutenant in one of the companies of said 117 New York State Volunteer Infantry and participated in that battle; that the said William C Casselman was wounded at that battle and died at the hospital that same day or night; that on next day, May 17, 1864, this deponent and one Joseph D. Monroe a comrade buried my brother, said William C Casselman at Bermuda Hundred, Va."
There is another document of marriage on 3fold proving that William was married to Laura or Launa A Mc David?? (She later married and last name is Baggarley) These are all documents for widows pension 33pgs.

|S. Wright||RE: W B Wright|
Sorry it took so long to answer back - i just saw your reply - William B. Wright does not have a memorial @ Maple Flats Cemetery - I still can't prove he is the brother of Frederick Wright.
I realized (after I added it) that you had wanted a photo. I believe that all you need to do is to reclick on the button asking for a photo. I have seen other people request another photo, when there was already a photo there.

|Kathy Manning||RE: James Burk - Lowville Rural.|
Thank you for the note. I'm so glad I could help. I'm in the process of documenting all the stones up there. Some are very difficult to read and I will have to go back to see if I need to do rubbings on and since winter is on the way here, it will have to wait until spring. I know there are more markers there that would be of interest to you.
Thank you again for the note. It's always nice to know when I can help someone out. :)
|Chrissy Gebo||RE: Grffith photo request.|
You're very welcome. I'm glad I could get them for you. :)

|Lysa||RE: Sawyer photo request.|
You are welcome. Just to let you know that i place a wreath on the grave during the holidays.
